Memories with Ayub Bacchu
I have so many memories with Bacchu Mama. He was very close to my family. The whole country was shocked at the sudden demise of this guitar maestro. He was loved by all the common people of this nation. I have seen tears in a chauffer's eyes, one of the worker's in a beauty parlour told me that she was also very shocked when she got the news. He did a revolution in rock music in our country. Bacchu Mama performed in my Gaye Holud. That was indeed a precious memory for me. We did a 'Phonolive' of 7 hrs, that was the longest phonolive in the history of our country and fortunately, I was the host. We also did many stage shows together. I will cherish the memory forever.
I watch movies and listen to songs. I do a movie review show in 'Geek Myth' page on Facebook. I love superhero movies nowadays.
So what fan are you? Marvel or DC?
Marvel, in terms of super hero movies (laugh)
I am a fan of 80's pop songs. George Michael, Madonna, Michael Jackson and in our country Hasan bhai is a very favourite singer of mine.
Favourite tourist destination...
Anywhere in America.
Mountain or sea
Of course sea.
What advice you would like to give to the people who want to be pop musicians?
Firstly, one has to decide which path he/she will choose. Is it for passion or for profession? Remember that music is a lifestyle if you take it as a profession. One has to listen to music more and more. And of course there is no alternative to practice. There are many self-made musicians but still having basic knowledge is important.
What are the qualities a good human must have?
You have to be caring for others. You must respect people. Try to be humble always and never be egoistic.
I always set small targets and try to achieve them. I am working on some of my solo releases; some cover mash ups, some original songs etc.
